matt - @juul's thing in #general[edit]

(juul from sudoroom writes): Noisebridge and sudo room, Counter Culture Labs and the greater Omni Commons (and possibly BioCurious) have a cross-space ban policy. When someone is banned from a space for a violation of the safe space policy then they are auto-banned from the other spaces as well. Spaces can grant exceptions to one of these bans for their own space if they don't agree with the reasons for the ban. We have a mailing list that a few members from each space is part of which is used to communicate these bans, as well as incidents of concern that all spaces should be made aware of. Currently the people from noisebridge on this list seem to be no longer active and this resulted in a person on the noisebridge 86 list who was banned for safe space reasons showing up at sudo room and counter culture labs several times before someone noticed. Please contact with the people who should be added to the safer spaces mailing list so we can avoid this in the future. These should be trusted noisebridge members who are actively co-organizing the space. -- juul

[beka will bottom line]

philanthropy applications / access discussion[edit]

javier describes philanthropy

matt - how can you lose philanthropy?

javier - bothering other people; members can remove philanthropy status

david - can lose it for sleeping

beka - no payment required; bothering may be okay to extent; stop if asked

r - good to clean up after yourself

david - bell guilt

james - most important thing to do is go there, look at the person, see if they look like anyone on the 86 list; give them a tour if their new; give your name, ask theirs

natalie - is checking every single face on 86 a requirement?

james - I guess it's not needed

beka - excellent to let people in the space; no requirement to do so

matt - never obligated to do it

natalie - good to highlight the anti-harrasment / safe space policyt

r - are you responsible for the people you let in the space?

[someone answered yes]

[javier, james, and david were made philanthropists]
